Guaranteed sunshine, endless beaches, a wide range of hotels and just about every entertainment known to man, Dubai holidays have become the quintessential holiday destination. Dubai is a destination exuding luxury, from the myriad of flamboyant shopping malls to the statuesque hotels and resorts. However it is also a Middle Eastern country rich in historic and cultural attraction for travellers wanted to go off the beaten track. During Ramadan a visit to the Heritage Village is definately worthwhile to witness the local Emiratis enjoying their songs, dance and traditions.
There are many other ways to avoid the tourist trails, watching the dhows, traditional wooden boats, and the abras weave along the waterway while smoking some sheesha alternatively walking the streets of the tranquil and restored Bastakia area allows a small insight into the Country, which offers a lot more than just shopping and tall lavish hotels.
